Steve Jobs had a developers conference today in San Francisco to reveal the new features of the 4.0 iPhone OS.
Some of the new features include:
Multitasking: It's here, finally. It's handled with a simple task switcher: double click your home button, and you get a list of running apps. Select, switch, done. Multitasking is limited to seven features, including audio and VoIP backgrounding.
Custom Backgrounds: Now you can choose a persistent background for your iPhone—not just for the homescreen.
New developer APIs: 5x digital zoom, sync IMAP notes, tap to focus video, places in Photos, home screen wallpaper (like iPad), iPod Out (wha?), Web search suggesetions, Bluetooth keyboards (!), file and delete mail search results, cell data only setting, larger fonts for mail, SMS and alerts, Choose image size in mail messages, wake on wireless, and a few more.
